CSFB HOLDS 5% VOTING STATKE IN RHEINMETTAL

09 Feb 05. Rheinmetall, the German maker of Puma and Leopard II tanks, said Feb. 10 that Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB) now holds a stake of 5.03 percent in its voting capital. CSFB’s stake in Rheinmetall rose above the key level of 5 percent Feb. 3, when the investment banking arm of Credit Suisse acquired 192,900 additional ordinary shares, equivalent to a voting stake of 0.88 percent, Rheinmetall said in a mandatory stock exchange filing.
Under German stock law, changes in a company’s shareholder structure must be made public if shareholdings move above or fall below certain key thresholds, such as 5 percent. (Source: AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, FRANKFURT)
